Boss Babe: Meet Christina Rinaldi

As a site that mostly celebrates entrepreneurs in fashion and hospitality through our series Wednesdays With, we have decided to officially launch another series that will take you into the lives of women, from all walks of life, that inspire us to get out of bed and carpe that f*cking diem.

Introducing Boss Babes, a series that will get you acquainted with forward-thinking, creative creatures who motivate us to the core. These women are ambitious, they work smart, and they think big-picture, not get rich quick.

In short, they’re sensational, and we couldn’t be more pumped to kick off the series with one of the most talented visual artists in the game. Meet Christina, Taste The Style’s first boss babe, and your soon-to-be girl crush.

Brief shoutout to Whitney Young who created the #imagirlboss series long before we joined the movement. We’re girl powering all over the internet one series at a time. Boom!
